Children’s Retreat is a special weekend organised for children with serious and life-changing medical conditions.
The children come without their parents for an exciting programme run over three days, catering to each child’s specific needs. Young volunteers join Camp Simcha staff on retreat to ensure the children have a fantastic time.
Medical staff, including a doctor and carers, attend as well so that parents can have a few days of respite while their child has an unforgettable weekend.
